There's your error. What you want here is a removal from unstable. Then the
package should migrate to testing just fine, and the old swi-prolog-java binary
will be gone from testing on mips once the new swi-prolog migrates.
ftp-masters don't handle removals from testing/stable/oldstable, that's done by
the release team, so I'm not sure why reportbug has that in the template...
maybe it should redirect the bugs to release.debian.org if you choose one of

Indeed, there's the magic that redirected you to unstable.
BTW I'm not sure if it should be: "RM: $binarypkgs [$archlist]", but that makes
more sense for partial removals...

If one ftp team member confirms it should be "RM: $binarypkgs [$archlist]" for
partial removals, then yes. Let's see what they say.
